in other words, dealing with one problem here as opposed to 100 problems is what you are asking us to do. >> please. >> thank you for coming. my question would be, what could you do to get the government out of our lives and let us use our god-given ability and talent to make things better for everyone. >> i suppose the easiest answer would be just to vote no on new programs. i think there are a lot of things out there already this year than to have the pill. .. i have found it easier to stop -- to cause problems for not getting larger and not establishing new problems and i found it to do with older programs. programs. being a person wants to limit government, i found the best way to do it was through the taxing policy. if you limit the money coming into the federal treasury, you will limit what can be spent to some extent. you are still having overspending. i do not by the principal that an increase the dollar of taxes is a dollar reduction in expenditures -- in the deficit. a dollar increase in taxes does not result in a dollar decrease in deficits. what it results in is probabl
committees. that never would have occurred to us. i don't think anybody spent 10 minutes thinking about welfare and health care proposals at the same time to these committees. that is exactly what this administration has done and maybe we will really learn something here. . >> we were in an unusual situation. democrats have not been in the white house and 12 years. almost no one one worked in the white house. we had very little idea. they told us a little bit about how this works. they do not know how i white house works. he can see a dramatic difference on how the obama administration hit the ground running. they have done it before. i imagine that most campaign workers feel the same anxiety the moment that their candidate wins and realize that now you have to share this thing with everybody else. yet to do with a party that was on helpful or oppose what you are trying to do. now they were in as good of a position to get an influential role in the administration as you waere. you actually believe in the guy you just elected. it is difficult and important for a white house to figure out
